  • The Hidden Life Of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate- Discoveries From A Secret World

    Peter Wohlleben , foreword by Timothy Flannery

    The author is a German forester whose sympathetic account of how trees behave like families has already been a bestseller in Europe. Tree parents prefer to live with their children, apparently. They have children relatively young and are useful as grandparents. With age their crowns thin and they expand around the middle… (We look forward to learning how the teenagers scarper.) This is an absolutely fascinating and extremely readable account of how trees create their own ideal environments and maintain them for centuries, if left to their own devices. A walk in the woods will never be the same again for anyone who reads this.
